I was always taught by my elders (no, not the pointy eared ones) to spend the most money possible on tools. In the long run the cheap tools will break and you will be constantly replacing them and spending more money. I've owned around 6 airbrushes in the past decade. I've had failures ranging from clogged, to split nozzles to bent needles all of which are operator error. It's the 180lb chimp hanging off the end of it that causes them to break. Each of these previous airbrushes has only cost me £30 to £40 and I do get a couple of years use out of each one. So when I saw an airbrush on eBay for less than £13 with free delivery, I thought what the heck. It's worth a shot. Find out what I think of it after the jump.
Hi all, I'm back with a Legio Custodes Guard from the Burning of Prospero box. This Guard is the only one I have (got it separately from a bitz seller), I justed wanted to know what it's like to paint one of them. Obviously, the main colour had to be gold. There isn't much on Legio Custodes Squads you need to paint differently ;) They might seem like massive and intimidating models, but they're actually quite easy to paint. I just drybrushed and washed the guy above.
So who else is with the Emperor and his elite guard? Leave a comment...
Here we have the first batch of Dark Reapers completed, with the second batch at the back. The contrast between the metallic black armour and the "true" black details on the Reaper Launchers is subtle, but I like it, and it's more evident in real life. What do you think?
Finished! It feels so good to get a Space Wolf model completed and I'm really happy with the results. I tried really hard with this one and the gulf in quality to Golden Demon standard is so vast. Luckily, I'm an army painter and content with what i produce. This won't be the only Space Wolf I paint, I'm planning a small force and I think an army painted to this level will be quite special (if I say so myself).
